Product Description
Looking to improve rigor in your classroom? What’s the Question is a higher order thinking skills activity that will challenge and help your math students critically think about various 7th grade math topics. This product consists of 14 different topics. There is one topic per page. Each topic consists of 5 different “questions.” The questions are actually the answers given to five different problems, and the students have to create the questions. This will help your students think deeper about the mathematics.

The 14 topics include:
Adding Integers
Subtracting Integers
Multiplying and Dividing Integers
Simplifying Expressions: Simplifying expressions with rational numbers and the distributive property.
Equations: Solving equations with rational numbers and the distributive property.
Unit Rates: Unit rates with rational numbers.
Proportional Relationships: Proportional relationships in tables, graphs and equations.
Constant of Proportionality: Identifying constants of proportionality in tables, graphs, and equations.
Triangles: Angles and side lengths that form a triangle.
Circles: Circumference and area of circles
Surface Area and Volume: Surface Area and volume of right rectangular prisms and pyramids.
Slicing: Identifying a two-dimensional figure from slicing a three-dimensional shape.
Statistics: Comparing means and medians, identifying a random sample, and bias questions.
Probability: Probability between 0 and 1 and uniform vs. non-uniform probability models.

An answer sheet is NOT included. Due to the nature of the activity, the answers will widely vary. A suggestion for the teacher: do not be so strict on students writing the right “answer” for this activity. Rather this is to challenge students to think beyond basic algorithms. Focus on the thinking of the students and you can learn a great deal on what your students really understand.

These would be great to use for assessments, homework, math centers, group work, or individual work.

This product is also available for 8th Grade
